This is the latest Everton News with Rafa Benitez making claims over his statue as the manager of the club and reveal problem with project works.
Following Carlo Ancelotti’s stunning exit to Real Madrid, the Blues went to former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers in a contentious decision.
After a promising start to the season, fortunes gradually deteriorated, and the Spaniard was fired in January following a humiliating defeat away to bottom-of-the-table Norwich City.
Frank Lampard took over as manager a few weeks later and was instrumental in bringing supporters together in important ways towards the conclusion of the season, with fantastic scenes constantly taking place outside Goodison Park and Finch Farm to secure a dramatic survival in the season’s last match.

Everton News: Benitez adamant over taking Everton job & reveals problems with Project
Benitez has lately spoken about his time at the club on several occasions, and he has now stated why he took the position in the first place.
He attributed his choice to a love of the city and stated where the difficulties were while he was in charge.
[Via SportWitness], he told Marca: “I chose Everton because I had a lot of Blues friends who wanted an experienced manager to fix a lot of the things they knew weren’t right, and still aren’t right.
“Because of my love for the city, Liverpool supporters realize it was a professional and personal decision. Most people were aware of this.
“It wasn’t like I’d signed a contract with United.” The Everton project, on the other hand, stayed put: no money was invested, and we had a lot of injuries.
“We lost the team’s backbone as well as some critical points.” With two games remaining, we were still six points clear of relegation.”
Prior to Benitez’s dismissal, Everton had only won one of their previous 13 Premier League games, while losing nine of them.
